Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society 

Learn about ongoing work in removing non-native invasive plants (and deer!) at Audubon Naturalist Society's 40 acre Woodend Sanctuary.  Alison Pearce, Director of Habitat Restoration, will discuss early results of deer exclusion, invasive plant managing, new plantings, and GIS tracking work in the sanctuary.   We will also look at sites for stream and trail restoration.

Habitat restoration at Woodend Sanctuary focuses on restoring forward – aiming for the future, guided by the wisdom of the past. At Woodend, we strive to re-establish complex relationships between people, plants, insects, birds, and animals to help put nature back on to a healthy trajectory.
